Scooter riders required to wear helmets. Isn’t that still a law?

How about the legality of blowing through EVERY intersection regardless of the signal, riding on the sidewalk, having the moped registered, or having the operator have a valid driver's license.

Since many dogs and cats are chipped, is it common for vets to run a lookup on new clients and will it flag the pet as being reported stolen?

Pet microchip companies offer a paid service where they will blast notify vets in the area of a missing pet as a BOLO. I think it's something you need to be paying for like a subscription ("microchip+") but maybe they offer it as a one time thing for a fee.

Pretty sure this kid isnt going to be taking his new dog to the vet, but good idea.

He took the dog to sell, not because he wanted a new best friend.

The dog looks like any other unleashed dog in the city.

Saying you don't live in Boston.

I mean, I live in Boston, and I don't see unleashed dogs that look like that, but you do you.

When I grew up (not around here) unleashed dogs were common. If you had a dog, it pretty much had the run of the neighborhood and everyone knew all the dogs, probably by name. (I fondly remember "Devil" who was the only dog I every saw smile.)

These days, on the rare occasion when a dog walks by on its own, we say, "Look at that self-walking dog!"

I'm mostly puzzled why anyone would expect a dog to be leashed indoors. It's sitting on purple carpeting, which is pretty uncommon outside.
